Review by Janine Pulford
With a foreword by Tanya Steele, the chief executive of the WWF, this stunning keepsake will enrich your vision of the natural world beyond measure. Gathered from the best photographs submitted in the 2017 British Wildlife Photography Awards, the abundant content reveals over 100 inspiring images, exposing the rich diversity and intricate beauty of nature.
From the ‘ah’ to the ‘wow’ factor, the collection spans artistic views as well as bringing the minutest and most delicate details into focus. A damselfly is seen in such close up that you can count the straggly hairs on its head and chin, and marvel at the complexity of its eyes. Dive below the water surface and you can catch a seal snoring, an otter performing a perfect wheel, and hydra (only a few millimetres long) in vibrant and sharp focus. For me the Grumpy Mountain Hare by David Walker melted my heart, but I am sure everyone will have a different favourite to embrace.
The book is not only one to proudly display on your coffee table, but if you have a love of nature, or are an artist seeking inspiration, you are sure to cherish this incredible volume of the British Wildlife Photography Awards.
